The striker is said to be on the verge of leaving the club
Ever since he’s signed from PSG, Edison Cavani has endured a topsy-turvy time at Manchester United. His spell at the club till now has been an intriguing one with the striker finding himself engulfed in manifold turmoil filled situations.
Banned by the FA for three matches after his comment on Instagram was deemed to be racial in nature, Cavani hasn’t endured the best of times on the pitch as well. While he’s managed to offer glimpses of what he’s capable of what a couple of match winning displays, the striker has continued to remain devoid of substantial time on the pitch.
His failure to become a mainstay of Manchester United’s attack has sparked rumours of Edinson Cavani wanting out of the club. And the striker’s father further fuelled such reports by claiming that the player was 60% close to a move to Boca Juniors at the end of the ongoing season.
Ole Affirms Exit Rumours
Speaking ahead of his side’s Europa League round of 16 fixture against AC Milan, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed to clarify the striker’s situation as well. Although Ole emoted towards the importance of the striker at the club he also asserted that the club was yet to sit down at the table with the striker.
Well, Edison’s fully focused on being available for us and working really hard to get fit,” Solskjaer said on the player.. “From my bad Portuguese and his better English, he’s very proud to play for Man United. He’s always going to give his best as long as.
“If it’s beyond this season as well, a decision hasn’t been made. As we’ve said, he’s made a great contribution so far.
“We’re just working on getting him back on the pitch and fit – and we’ll convince him when the weather in Manchester improves!
“I can’t comment on what has been said, I can only say that we’re very pleased with Edinson when he’s here, he’s working really hard to be available, day in and day out, he’s proving his personality, his professionalism, even in his broken English he’s helping the young kids, as we wanted him to.
“We knew he wasn’t going to be able to play every single game, of course, because he’d been out of football for so long, now let’s just makes sure he plays as much football as possible until the end of the season, score as many goals as he can, helps the young players, the strikers, the forwards, even the rest of the group with his mentality. And then he will make his decision.
The striker had agreed to a one year deal at the club after his services were deemed surplus at PSG. His most notable moment for the Premier League side was his strike in the club’s turnaround against Southampton.
